Premiering on November 29th at 4 p.m. EST on SiriusXM’s Classic Vinyl station, each episode will focus on a specific time period at Sound City. Episode one covers 1970-75 and will feature music from artists like Neil Young, Elton John and Fleetwood Mac. The episodes will extend to 2011, with music from Tom Petty, Santana, the Grateful Dead, Jimmy Eat World, Metallica, Arctic Monkeys and Grohl’s former group Nirvana, who recorded some of their seminal Nevermind at Sound City. 

“I’m so proud of the Sound City film and beyond excited for the world to see what I’ve been working on for the past year,” Grohl said in a statement. “Even before that, though, I’m grateful to SiriusXM for giving me the opportunity to share all this great music and to let people know what got me excited about Sound City in the first place.” 

The final episode of the show, airing January 24th, will feature a discussion with Grohl about making the documentary Sound City. You can also check out a preview clip of the film that finds Tom Petty, Mick Fleetwood, Butch Vig and Trent Reznor talking about the studio’s beloved Neve 8028 recording console.
